Mysterious Buddhist ceremony in the temple could be seen if you came on some traditional Buddhist holidays. Vegetarians might be interested in the food given to monks.
  To know about Chinese green tea culture, Tiger-running Spring and Longjing (Dragon Well) Village are the best destinations. The Longjing (Dragon Well) Tea and the Tiger-running Spring water are always reputed as the "Two Wonders of the West Lake area".
  The Xixi (West Spring) National Wetland Park (6 kilometers from West lake) has became one of the most popular scenic spot recently. It is the only wetland in the country that comprises urban wetland, rural wetland and culture wetland.
 As to food, since you are in Hangzhou, you should eat what Hangzhou people eat.In recent years Hangbang cuisine ( popular in Hangzhou region, Zhejiang) has found flavor in the eyes of domestic customers and the customers from Hongkong and Taiwan regions.
  Most of the tourists would like to buy Longjing green tea, silk fabric and women’s dress in Hangzhou. Unfortunately, out-of-town and foreign visitors are the main target of swindle money. Famous brand products and time honored shops are your better choices.
